My Travel Story

by: Sam Watson Start Date: May 19, 2017 - End Date: Jan 3, 2018
I have always wanted to volunteer in another country to help those less fortunate than I and share my love and happiness over to them to help brighten their days.
I have a passion for help people and brightening the future of others. I am currently studying teaching (and will be completed by the time i head to SA) and I will be able to use my passion in teaching and assisting to better the childrens learning and happiness.
I am extremely excited about this project and I would greatly appreciate it if you were able to assist me in helping the orphans by donating. I am so excited to get over their and help the children. I will use the donations to better the childrens day and to assist with buying supplies and resources for the orphanage :)

Thank you

  • Helping Those Less Forunate

    I am currently trying to raise funds for a volunteer trip to Cape Town’s South African orphanage. While there we will be dedicating 4 weeks to help small children in the orphanage and crèche.
    Mornings through to midafternoon I will work at a pre-school/crèche and then afternoons working with the orphaned children ages from 7-15.
    I will be there to help develop the child’s creative and educational skills as well as assisting teachers and kitchen staff where needed.

    “The Aim of the program is to give love and care to township children and orphans. I will also be introduced to projects within the community and spend time with children in this diverse African community (Age 1-7 years). This opportunity will allow you to use your creative skills working at a crèche in the morning and an orphanage in the afternoons, serving the poorest area of the township and thus helping to provide the care and attention these small children crave. This will include feeding, playing and cuddling as well as coordinating activities.”
